Bungie.comHalo 3 Public Beta!? Perhaps the biggest bomb that was dropped today, the MOAB of press announcements, was the indication of a public beta for Halo 3 coming next Spring. What exactly does this mean? Well, again we can’t really get into the details quite yet (notice a theme here?) but we can confirm that our fans will have an opportunity to play Halo 3 multiplayer over Xbox Live BEFORE the final game is available. You’ll be playing a little multiplayer and simultaneously providing us with some valuable data to help our development team. We’re still working out the details on timing and scope and there will be a lot more info coming in the weeks ahead. We can confirm that you will absolutely be required to have an Xbox 360. Probably not a huge surprise.
This and some other cool stuff has been posted at Bungie.com as a teaser being 5 years to the day that the original Halo was released. To read the rest of the article click here.
ok now i really need 360 good to me i have money:naughty:
Meh, I wish I could afford a 360. Eventually I'm going to have to buy one. : /
At $400 or $300 it does cost a bit, but at least it doesn't cost as much as the PS3! Anyway, I happily have one, so when I see Halo 3 on the Xbox Live Market Place I'll DL it on the double, hopefully it has at least Slayer and CTF with 1 map on LIVE, then I'll be pwning noobs on Halo 3 before you know it.
